Happy Friday and happy first day of fall!  Normally, I would dread the arrival of this season which signals the gradual reemergence of winter.  But, this year, I’m actually looking forward to sweater weather, boots, pumpkin everything, apple picking, our outdoor fire pit, red wine, and of course, all the fall trends.  I’m probably late to the party when it comes to being on the up and up in terms of the latest and the greatest but these eight trends seem to be going strong.  A few pieces I recently picked up are this blazer, this cami, these jeans, and these loafers which is my favorite look right now.  These easy and chic pieces check all my boxes.  What fall trends are you currently coveting?

Best of Hilton Head

Best of Hilton Head

As I write this post, I’m simultaneously checking for updates as to how Hilton Head survived the storm.  So far, it doesn’t look too, too bad although there is considerable flooding, particularly in Harbour Town.  The water spilled over from the bay onto all the sidewalks (it looks like a river by the marina) and(…)
